I am a person of many varying interests. I usually enjoy using a computer to do varying activities such as Photoshop, 3D modeling and animation, and some minor PC gaming.
As for entertainment, when I watch movies I observe and deconstruct what makes a film “great”. I’ve taken several film classes and passed with all A’s at IUPUI. So I hope you'll consider my opinion of anime with higher value.
When it comes to anime, I do not watch any anime that is strictly for children or purely comical. I seek a one-of-a-kind story in anime that American TV shows lack. There are stories told in certain anime that only adults would fully understand. One such anime is Black Lagoon dealing with the life of a modern day pirate of the oceans back in 2006. There is a ton of profanity and killing throughout the anime but maintains a reasonable story to support such scenes.
Another example, Mirai Nikki (The Future Dairy) is something not commonly conceived. The twists and turns of how love is portrayed by the alterations to the delicate fabric of time brings a one of a kind experience. What I also seek in anime is the pure emotions expressed in a character's facial expression. No, I’m not talking about the comical expressions, but the expressions that portray an emotion that would take a professional actor/actress years to mimic such talent.
I also enjoy learning pieces of the Japanese culture through anime. A slice of life is always delicious.
What I dream for is seeing the world and its different cultures with Europe and Japan in particular. I plan in the future to study abroad to Europe and Japan before my student years are up. There’s a big world out there and I’d like to see as much as I can before I reach the end of my life.
I was on my High school's Swimming and Track Team for three years. Though my high school years were the roughest years of my life. Not by sports, but by the way of living I had to endure that only few close to me know about.
Before considering to watch any anime, I usually don't watch anything below 3.7/5.
Overall, I try to find any hidden meanings in a work of anime and other forms of entertainment such as regular movies like Pirates of the Caribbean.
How I rate anime:
1 star: sh*t
2 stars: not worth mentioning
3 stars: Lacked a in-depth story of characters (may stall or drop)
4 Stars: Worth watching at least once all the way through
5 Stars: Original, high-quailty in-depth story of all characters with beauitiful artwork
Random fun question: If you could dye your hair any color, what would it be?
If I were to dye my hair any color, it would be black with an electric blue stripe in the front.

Types of music I enjoy:
Dubstep, Techno, Trance, Nightcore, rock, some heavy and death metal, pop, almost anything pretty much.
